White House internships now available through WCSC!
WCSC is now offering internships with the White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships. This office coordinates faith-based centers in 12 federal agencies, and they are interested in receiving EMU students starting this spring 2013.
A student doing WCSC would work at a center in a federal agency such as the Dept. of Agriculture, Dept. of Homeland Security (FEMA), Dept. of Health and Human Services or the Small Business Administration. Thus, the student would get hands-on experience working directly for a federal agency as well as the White House. The work would be in a faith-based environment that’s suited to the students’ academic and professional interests.
How do I apply for an internship?
- WCSC faculty and staff will help you to find an internship in your major or an area of interest. We especially look for internships in culturally diverse settings, with organizations who are making a positive contribution to the community.
- We generally make the initial contact at an organization and set up an interview for you at 1-3 possible placements. You should plan to come to DC for a day of interviews a few months before your term begins, and we generally accompany students on these meetings.
- Some internships have their own application process, which may require a phone interview, an application, or a cover letter. Others do not have formal internship program and will not require anything beyond meeting you. In either case, we ask you to prepare a resume tailored for the internships you are pursuing.
- Remember that we are not limited to the internships listed in our directory. Approximately 25% of internship placements each semester are brand new sites, as students often have specific interests that we are able to help them pursue.
